Stirrups and Saddle Fit




One more thing: If the saddle fits properly, when the stirrup is hanging down on the saddle, it's going to be exactly vertical. If it's hanging here or here (not vertical) then the saddle is not sitting balanced on the horse's back. If you drop the stirrup and it hangs perfectly vertical, then you know that the saddle is properly balanced.
